  Cape Sebastian
Southern Oregon

Cape Sebastian has a seascape like world famous Point Lobos in Carmel, except without the all the people. You can either walk out to the point along this beach, or drive up 101 a little farther north and hike down from the top of this ridge. Both are truly beautiful hikes. The Cape is about 90 miles north of the California border, just south of Gold Coast.
  Crescent Beach
Olympic Peninsula, Washington

Crescent Beach is at the tip of the Olympic Peninsula, just west of Port Angeles. The tides of San Juan De Fuca are among the most dramatic in the world. When the tide goes out here, you can walk all the way out and way past this island. In the distance you see the San Juan Islands. Turn around and you'd see the Olympic Mountain Range.
Forest Floor of Ladybird Johnson Grove
North Coast Redwoods, California

Ladybird Johnson Grove, outside Orick, California, is a fabulous place to visit the North Coast Redwoods. A level, relatively short, about 2 mile trail, leads you through a thick carpet of ferns and lichen towered over by these giants of the arboreal world. Wear your boots, however, since the going can get muddy and mighty buggy.

Just outside Orick, California, Ladybird Johnson Grove is high along mountainside. You walk through a dense grove of 250 foot tall trees until you come to a steep cliff. This has helped to illuminate some of my favorite photos of the redwoods, including what you see here.
Ho Rain Forest
Olympic Peninsula, Washington

The Ho Rainforest was quite an amazing experience for me. It started raining just after I arrive and I soon had the campground all to myself. It rained for 3 days straight. I just stayed in my tent and painted. My acrylic paints never dried. Whenit finally cleared up, I went out into the mossy, overgrown forest and came upon a heard of elk. They heard me and cleared out before I could even take a picture.
  San Francisco Peaks With Aspens In Foreground
Northern Arizona

The San Francisco Peaks are the highest in Arizona. Just outside of Flagstaff, it towers over 13,000 feet and on a clear day can be seen from over 100 miles away. Clearly volcanic in origin the hotspot has continued to move east. Sunset Crater, a classic cindercone, lies less than 20 miles away.
Mt. Eldon

My friend from Flagstaff, Debbie Leavitt, spotted ths cool, lightning-stuck stump first. (I wonder how her photos of it turned out.) Looks kinda like a crocodilian to me. With the storm coming in fast, I took her suggestion and got of the ridge before we got hit by a bolt.
Source of the Firehole River
Yellowstone Park, Wyoming

Located just west of the continental divide, the Firehole River is aptly named, serving as the main drain for Yellowstone's western geyser basins. Further along its path, the Firehole drops over several spectacular waterfalls along its way to join the Snake River and, eventually, the Columbia on it's way to the Pacific Ocean.
Burnt Forest and Hot Springs
Yellowstone Park, Wyoming

Yellowstone was recently devastated by a series of major forest fires which burned unabated for several weeks. Evidence of this can be seen throughout the park. It made for some very dramatic scenes, like this one, and unearthly combination of simmering opalescent pools, blackened forest and clear blue sky.
